For Women in Science

Established in 2004 with a close partnership with the Indonesian National Commission for UNESCO, the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia (KNIU Kemdikbud), each year, the L’Oréal-UNESCO FWIS National program recognizes extraordinary Indonesian women who have given significant contribution to science. It acknowledges outstanding young Indonesian female researchers who dedicate their career to develop scientific innovations and contribute to the sustainable development and the betterment of communities all over Indonesia.

From the very start, the program has been recognized by the Indonesian ministries on its high potential and capabilities to support Indonesian women in the fields of science and research. Three Indonesian ministries: the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Women's Empowerment and Child Protection, and the Ministry of Research and Technology have provided their invaluable acknowledgement and support that has been essential to the success of the program.

L’Oréal-UNESCO FWIS National program supports the bright, innovative minds needed to confront the nation’s most critical issues. Every year, four young Indonesian women researchers consisting of 2 winners in the field of Material Sciences and 2 winners in the field of Life Sciences are awarded fellowships to conduct their research. By supporting young women researchers and promoting science as a career, the program aims to help ensure that innovative minds will provide the steady stream of talents essential in resolving the critical issues confronting the nation. In celebrating the achievements of accomplished women researchers, L’Oréal-UNESCO FWIS program endeavors also help to give a public forum to speak out and reach out for science.

Sorority in Science

L’Oréal Girls in Science (LGIS) is a national science competition for female high school students. The objective of this program is to promote science as a fun, creative and vitally promising field of career. Previously known as L’Oréal Girls Science Camp, the program has been rebranded to ensure that it is aligned with the initiative of L’Oréal Foundation and that LGIS shares the same equity with L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science and L’Oréal Sorority in Science, which is to raise the awareness of science amongst women.
